However you should apply for a key a production API key for larger or commercial apps. This can be done under the 'Devs' top menu.
Below find complete instructions for using our JSON API.
All example links use the test key which should only be used during development or for personal apps.
You can request a production API key by clicking

Our API is free but consider a yearly donation if your app is commercial.
